Kim Myung-min, "You can expect a different image from 'White Tower'"

2007/07/09 | 103 views | Permalink | Source

Kim Myung-min who played a cold-hearted surgeon in 'White Tower' will be welcoming moviegoers on screen in a white gown once again.

A press conference for the movie "Wide Awake" which is scheduled to open in theatres on August 9th starring Kim Myung-min was held in Seoul.

The movie is a mystery thriller about a child patient who becomes conscious during surgery despite being under anesthesia, and the events that occur 25 years after the child disappears from the hospital.

Kim Myung-min commented, "Only the occupation of the character is the same from 'White Tower' as I acted a doctor with a completely different personality".

The following is the response from Kim Myung-min in regards to a question asking about his second role as a doctor, and how is it different from 'White Tower'.

My style is to always review things thoroughly before making any decision, but "Wide Awake" was the first piece I decided in a hurry. I decided to take the role one week prior to the crank in date. Only the occupation is the same as the character's personality, background, friends, and all situations are completely different. I was filming "Wide Awake" first and 'White Tower' shoots overlapped for about three weeks. I played a rather strong cold-hearted image in 'White Tower' but this character in the movie if faithful to his family and very sincere to all the hospital employees. Because the two characters were contrastingly different, I decided to take the role in 'White Tower'. I have been able to let go of the 'White Tower' character now. (Kim Myung-min)
